5689416c 48This schedule lists the release engineers for at least the next
d29a1dbb 49four months of releases of bleadperl. If there are fewer than

50four months listed as you make a release, it's important
51that you extend the schedule AND B<identify the next release engineer>.
52
53Before adding a release engineer, you B<must> contact them and they
54B<must> consent to ship the release.
55
56When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least)
57the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released,
58you should reset the version numbers to the next blead series.
